Delvonte Tisdale may have fallen out of an airplane as it prepared to land at Boston’s Logan Airport last month, Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating said.
This discovery ended the criminal investigation into the mysterious and brutal death of the North Carolina teen.
The body of the 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale was found Nov. 15 in a quiet upscale subdivision in Milton, N.C. – which lies underneath the flight path aircraft sometimes use to arrive at Logan Airport.
“It appears more likely than not that Mr. Tisdale was able to breach airport security and hide in the wheel well of a commercial jet airliner without being detected by airport security,’’ Keating said.
Keating said today that Tisdale suffered massive injuries from him slamming into the street, whereas earlier reports said the teen was victimized by a vicious killer who mutilated him.
"It’s a terrible tragedy what happened to this young man, but if that was someone with a different motive… if that was a terrorist that could have been a bomb that was planted, undetected. This is very serious.’’
Our hearts go out to the Tisdale family for everything they’ve endured.
